What operating system are you on? If it's Windows XP, make sure you have Service Pack 3.

Yes.

I suggest you get it right now, and get all the 4 years or so of hotfixes you have missed as well, before Microsoft shuts down the update service for XP in April.

Windows XP exist since oktober 2001 and the service pack 3 since april 2008 (Support till 8. april 2014 or 13 days since my post)
So why in hell did you not have sp3?

Even if it is better to ugrage now to a new windows version like windows 7 but yes, pale moon need service pack 3
